Mama Africa by Mario Gerth
This variant is currently sold out
Mama Africa - this nickname is a status symbol.
"Only through a long, self-sacrificing life by educating a handful of children, a selfless life and a pleasure of a pure life a woman acquires the character of a real Mama Africa.
They care for the children and the farm, cook food, farm the fields, draw water, push cereals, hauling wood.
On my trips I met them everywhere: The round tea picker in Uganda, the chubby fisherwoman in Malawi, the cotton weaver in Rwanda, the obese stone cleaver in Zimbabwe, the gaunt camel driver in northern Kenya and the clever diamond-smuggler in Namibia - to all which they are mother and grandmother, wife and foundation of the entire continent" - Mario Gerth

Mario Gerth is an incredible German photographer who has travelled to more than 65 countries across 5 continents in pursuit of his passion. He has witnessed civil war, poverty, dictatorship and violence but more often he has been guest in a world that is characterized by natural beauty. His images pay homage to Africa and the African people and depict a world were dignity and elegance is etched on the faces of the people, where pride shines out in the eyes from the young child to the old man. The images breathe a diversity and naturalness missing from the Western world. Gerth's photography has been shown in International exhibitions and published in numerous magazines including Time Magazine who named him a world changer.
